Found April 10, 2012 on Awful Announcing:

Earlier today, we shared the news that Skip Bayless was outed as a liar with regards to his mythical high school basketball career he foolishly touted on Twitter. On today's First Take, a mind-numbing debate took place that had Skip Bayless calling Thunder PG Russell Westbrook (the source of this discussion in the first place) his league MVP. This turn-around came after weeks and months of Bayless destroying Westbrook's play. It's amazing that someone of such integrity and someone who so steadfastly defends Tim Tebow would flip flop so quickly with the winds of change.

That discussion led to this delightful bit of schadenfreude where ESPN's Jalen Rose shoved Skip's lies in his face on his own autocratic television show...

"What were you, did you average 1.4 points as a senior in high school?"

"All of that Pistol Pete stuff? Water Pistol Pete Junior."

This is as meek and uncomfortable and defeated as Skip Bayless has ever looked. How convenient that Skippy says he would explain himself later in the show, but that never transpired. Again, it's more than likely First Take tries to sweep this under the rug and Bayless continues his march of destruction across common sense and intellectual honesty. We can only hope anyone that has the misfortune to sit across from Skip Bayless repeats these assertions every day for every tiring debate until Skip explains himself or throws in the towel on his career as a marauding commentator.

Thank you Jalen Rose for finally giving us a First Take moment we can actually appreciate.

Video: ESPN's Jalen Rose has doubts about the Spurs

After the San Antonio Spurs won 11 games in a row for the second time this year, ESPN NBA analyst Jalen Rose threw in his two cents on the Spurs’ chances at a title. On a scale of 1-10, he gave the Spurs a 7, saying that they need some help down low and that Oklahoma City is going to be a big “road block.” Check out the video. I’m going to go ahead and agree...

Jalen Rose calls out Skip Bayless for Lying, HAHA!

You're reading the title and thinking I'm siding with Jalen Rose here? Oh hell nah. Never will I side with the man who has one of the worst speech impediments in sports broadcasting history. All Skip Bayless would have had to do is just say, "who does ESPN like more?" and that would have shut the DUI-lying JAILen Rose up from trying to embarrass Skipper on live...

Jalen Rose calls out Skip Bayless over his high school basketball career

ESPN’s Skip Bayless used to just be a talking head.  In the last couple years, he’s turned into a body and neck that just vomits toxic garbage.  He’s a professional arguer and a terrible one at that.  Yet somehow, ESPN continues to basically give him his own show.  He’s become the ultimate example of someone made to get dunked on.  It doesn’t matter who sits opposite...

Skip Bayless answers his critics as First Take spirals into a circus

After Jalen Rose confronted Skip Bayless yesterday on First Take that Skip Bayless's high school career wasn't anywhere near as profilic as Bayless claimed (after some fantastic investigative work by The Lost Ogle), the duo had a formal response to the situation yesterday. It really didn't go the way we all expected. Bayless claimed he was offended by Rose'...

VIDEO: Jalen Rose Forces Skip Bayless to Admit He Was No Pistol Pete in High School

ESPN First Take screamer/master debater, Skip Bayless, has been ragging on the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook for two season’s now, claiming that Westbrook is too much of a “shoot-first” point guard for the Thunder to win a title. Trying to hammer home his point, and to show he has some kind of experience when it comes to “shoot-first” point guards, Skip tweeted the following...

OMG, Jalen Rose Destroys Skip Bayless & His H.S. Basketball Claims

Yes, the dickhead producers at ESPN’s First Take are suckering me in on this one. The Internet was buzzing yesterday over news that Skip Bayless might have embellished his high school basketball prowess. He claimed to be stud basketball player, yet averaged 1.4 ppg his senior year. Blah, blah, blah. So, guess who First Take had handy this morning to ‘debate’ Skip? A guard...

Skip Bayless' Wikipedia page gets hacked, badly

So you wake up with confirmation that ESPN's Skip Bayless is a liar. That progresses to Jalen Rose forcing him to talk about it on First Take. And it ends with a badly edited Wikipedia page and... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~

Jalen Rose calls out Skip Bayless on his basketball career

Jalen Rose found out that Skip Bayless averaged 1.4 points per game during his senior year and had some choice words for Bayliss.

Metta World Peace's horrible inbound pass

Metta World Peace throws the most questionable inbound pass that I have ever seen during Monday night’s 93-91 win over the New Orleans Hornets. Metta has done some weird things over the years but this has to be one of the craziest things I’ve seen from the NBAer formally know as Ron-Ron. “Only in the wild world of Peace” -Jalen Rose

Jalen Rose Goes Slumming on First Take with Skip Bayless

I have a policy that explicitly prohibits me from watching First Take. It’s my own personal “common sense” clause. I just can’t get caught up in things that I PERSONALLY believe insult my intelligence. First Take is a lot like wrestling except wrestling thrives on the fact that everyone knows it’s fake. First Take survives by people–especially athletes–thinking it...
